It's Tortie Tuesday! Normally I'm very reserved and extremely mellow but I do have a silly side that I show every so often...
That wasn't it - that was my cute side. This is my silly side...
See my teefs?
My silly side makes my beans giggle every time.
Maybe they are the silly ones and not me. What do you think?

Hope you have a Happy Tortie Tuesday!

PeeS: We decided to donate $1 per comment on both Saturday and Sunday's post to animal charities. Half will go to a charity for senior dogs, the other half to a charity that helps kitties. Thanks for all your comments!

We had a really good weekend celebrating our Mommy's birthday and appreciate all the comments on yesterday's post since we are going to donate $1 per comment to an animal charity. Also, Marg and her pets have accepted our PIF challenge so more animals in need will be helped thanks to them too!

Because we had so much fun, we didn't get a chance to get new photos downloaded so we are going to show you some of our recent outtakes. These may not have made the blog the first time but since they are of us, they are worthy of being seen! A lot of times, we get outtakes because Mommy takes way too long to take a picture so we always move our head just as she pushes the button on the camera like this...
and this...
Sadie sometimes has a blurry booty on her walks too...
Even when we're fuzzy, we're still cute though!

Thanks again to everyone who commented yesterday and helped us help more animals! We hope you have a great week!

Our mommy wants to thank you all very much for the birthday wishes yesterday! Your comments helped to make it a very nice day for her.
Since Mommy already has the three of us plus Daddy, there wasn't any present to get her other than one that helped out animals in need. To do this, we're going to need you help...

We recently accepted a Paw It Forward challenge from our furiends in Kansas Phantom, Thunder and Ciara. Aren't they such a beawootiful family?
The OP pack gave a generous donation to help Shelby so, for our PIF challenge and also in lieu of our mommy's present, we're going to donate to an animal charity. How much we donate will be decided by you! Just leave a comment on this post from now until our Monday post publishes at midnight PST and we'll donate $1 per comment!

If you'd like to accept the PIF challenge and Paw It Forward to others in need too, just let us know in your comment. We'd love for three of our furiends to participate but we do understand that times are very tough right now. Anyway, thank you for helping us help animals!

Disclaimer: Only one comment per family will count for the $1 comment challenge and spam will not count at all.

Today is a very special Sadieday because it's my mommy's birthday! She turns a squizillion and two today so I'm taking her on a special stroll on a forest path in the Cascade mountains! Do you want to come along? Okay, let's go!
Since it's Mommy's birthday I even let her off leash so she can explore all the new smells sights...
I also sort of let her take a picture of my face...
Oh, okay, I can do a little better job of letting her take a picture of my face today. It's not my fault I ran to her too fast and she wasn't ready but hey, at least I smiled!
Time to head back to my SUV (Sadie Utility Vehicle)* and go get some birthday cake!
Do you wanna see a photo of me and the birthday girl? If I show you, you can't tell her okay? Alright, here we are (I'm the cute one on the right)...
I hope you enjoyed coming along with me today! Have a great Sadieday!

*Thanks to Tim at Everyday Living for naming my SUV the Sadie Utility Vehicle!

Since Labor Day is coming up here in the U.S., the current EtsyBloggers blog carnival asks how we celebrate this 'official' end of summer and what it means to us. Well, this time of year is special because our mommy's birthday is August 28th and she's going to take off work the week between her birthday and Labor Day. Our mommy will be a squizillion more than 3 but here's a demonstration of how we'll celebrate this weekend...
Labor Day also signals the end of summer vacations which means less tourists on the beach!
And it means windows will be open more often as the temperature gets cooler...
It also means Daddy will be getting ready to go back to school too so we'll have to help him keep his straight As again...
So, we are sad that summer is almost over but we are looking forward to the things that this time of year brings.

What does Labor Day mean to you?

It's Tortie Tuesday! I've been napping a lot lately because, well, just because I want to.
Anyway, it doesn't seem that my mommy has figured out that napping is a time that I want peace and quiet and that means no flashy beast!
I think she thinks I don't see her...
Think she'll figure it out now?
Sheesh. Even Torties can use a little beauty sleep from time to time. Speaking of which, back to sleep to become even more beautiful...
Hope you have a beautiful Tortie Tuesday!

We're going to hang on to the weekend for as long as we can...
or at least until Sadie walks by and I have to whap her tail.
Hope you have a good day!

The Etsyblogger for the month of August is Patch from PatchFirstShop. Patch lives in Thailand and makes really pretty jewelry so we wanted to show you some earrings that she custom made for our mommy. Well, our resident Supermodel Isabella is taking a nap so I'm going to be the Supermodel today. I'll show you the pretty earrings with me doing my thoughtful look in the background...
Oops, I couldn't resist whapping them...
At least I didn't sniff them like Sadie did...
Okay, this Supermodel stuff is harder than it looks. No wonder Isabella is resting up. Maybe we'll just show you them without a model...
Better yet, see them here in Patch's Etsy shop and be sure to check out all her other lovely jewelry in her shop too!

Disclaimer: No pretty jewelry was harmed in the photo shoot for this post.

Happy Sadieday! I look forward to my Sadieday stroll all week and can't wait to get started so if you're ready, let's go and kick up some dust on these trails!
It's much cooler this weekend so I can go faster on this stroll...
Well, until I have to stop and wait on Mommy...
I try and get her to hurry up by making her think there's something in the bushes ahead by putting up my ears. Normally my ears are back listening to her but when I put them up like I'm listening to something, it makes her nervous and she puts a little pep in her step...
Of course there's nothing there, I just want her to speed up - do you think she's buying it?
Uhm, nope. I just have to go back to be closer to her.
Oh well, I still had fun on my stroll and hope you did too!

Have a great Sadieday!
